Top 5 Drugstore | Concealers

Hello Lovelies!

Recently I have just been on a crazy concealer buying spree! Concealer has turned into the one thing I have been craving to find the perfect one. I've been through a similar crazy with mascaras, foundation and eyeliners, so now it is concealer time. I absolutely love trying out different versions of the same product to find the one that is for me. Now being honest I love these five picks equally and rotate between them throughout the week. There are some used for different purposes compared to others but I will explain more thoughout the post.

L'oreal Lumi Magique Concealer
I was on the hunt for ages for a dupe for my beloved YSL Touche Eclat and I think I may have found one! (Granted L'oreal own YSL so it is probably pretty much the same product) This is an amazing under eye concealer, it completely brightens up the area while still giving a decent coverage. So you can cover and brighten those dreaded dark circles! It is really lightweight so it doesn't cake or crease under the eyes either. It comes in a handy pen form like the Touche Eclat so you can literally paint it on and blend it in and your good to go. I love the rose gold packaging of this too! 
Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer 
 As you all know I am a massive fan of the Healthy Mix foundation, so much so that it just became obvious that I needed the Healthy Mix concealer too! I actually use this concealer both for covering up blemishes and for under my eyes. So I usually have this one in my handbag ready for touch-ups throughout the day. It's perfect for popping on over my foundation because it doesn't cake or look too much. So it is that perfect middle of the day concealer for everything! I'm not the biggest fan of the packaging though because I always end up squeezing out way too much!

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
Lets be fair..we all knew this concealer was going to be in this post didn't we? The Collection concealer has been raved about by beauty bloggers everywhere and rightly so. It covers absolutely everything, and lasts for ages on the skin. I do find it can be a little bit cakey if your not careful but if you are a concealer newbie this is definitely the one to go for. Again I use this both for under my eyes and on blemishes and it works brilliantly on both. They don't have the best shade range in the world and that is one thing that I wish they would improve on. 

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
This is one of the most recent additions to my concealer collection and for the same reasons as I bought the Bourjois Concealer. I was a fan of the Wake Me Up foundation so I thought I would give the concealer a try. Like the foundation it is a brightening concealer- literally designed to wake your skin up. This concealer I only use under my eyes because it would be way too brightening for any blemishes. It lasts well throughout the day and again it doesn't cake up under my eyes which I appreciate. It does seem to have tiny pieces of shimmer in it which is similar to the foundation so be wary of this if you have oily skin this may just emphasise that and may not be the one for you.

Seventeen Phwoarr Paint
I absolutely am in love with this concealer. It literally covers everything! Apparently it is meant to be a dupe for Benefit's Erase Paste- I've never tried that so I can't officially comment but this stuff is amazing! I use it for under my eyes, blemishes the whole lot! It is a more heavy duty concealer compared to the others in this post but there are just some days where you need the little bit extra and this is the one for that! I have already hit pan on this, that's how much I love it and I will definitely be picking up another one! 

So those are my top picks for "drugstore" concealers. Have you any recommendations for me? Please let me know what your favourite concealers are to use! 


  1. I am loving Wake Me Up concealer! Works wonders for me :)

  2. I love collection, though I do find it cakey - what shade do you have the bourjois in? All the ones I've searched have been too dark

    Katy xx

  3. I also love the Bourjois, L'oreal and Rimmel one, haven't tried the others though :) You should try the L'oreal Touche Magique concealer, I absolutely love it.

  4. I've heard such good things about all these concealers, it's so hard to choose which one to get! You should try out the Fit Me concealer by Maybelline, it's one of my absolute favourites and I think you'd really like it :) x.

  5. I love the look of the Bourjois Healthy Mix! I definitely need to try it - I'm yet to find my perfect concealer!

  6. I have the Lumi Magique, Wake Me Up and Lasting Perfection but want to try the other two haha! The Phwoarr Paint appeals to me so much but I always tell myself I need to finish at least one of my current concealers before getting another but I feel I'll lose the battle haha x

  7. I'm getting the Collection one for Christmas, I can't wait!! x
